iTether was the app which was pulled from the app store on the same day it launched back in November 2011. Now the devs of iTether are back by releasing the same app as ‘Tether’ and it brings the same features and used USB to connect your Mac to your iPhone to use its data connection.The app bypassed the usual carrier tethering charges which probably explains why it was pulled previously from the App Store. The service of new Tether app is base on HTML5 and no need to be connect through Apple Store.
“It was clear from our initial application iTether, there was enormous demand within the iPhone ecosystem,” says Tim Burke, CEO of Tether. “It was unfortunate that Apple decided to remove our application, only 20 hours after we launched. However, this caused us to innovate. Our underlying patent-pending technology behind Tether for iPhone is unlike anything on the market.” Tether’s new version for the iPhone is purely based on HTML5 and creates a completely wireless connection over AdHoc. This circumvents the need of buying the application directly from Apple’s App Store and allows any iPhone or iPad with a data connection to allow tethering.
And now see the Tether app in action:
The services of Tether HTML5 Web Based App are available on yearly basis and can be purchase from the tether app official website. The installation of this app is simple all you have to do is sign up on this website and download the desktop client of this app to your Windows/ Mac PC and follow on screen instruction to make Ad-Hoc network on your PC and your iPhone and PC should communicate in order to verify that data connection is properly working.
